While the wood species, color and door style you select for your cabinets will be a major factor in the overall appearance of your kitchen, don't overlook the backsplash area. This can be a great opportunity to use an unusual material, create a bright pop of color, or echo the finishes used elsewhere in the room. And, since the square footage is typically limited, you can get a big impact without hurting your budget!
Here are some resources we found for inspiration:
– Southern Living shares a dozen different materials
– Becky Harris at Houzz highlights some unique tile options
– Better Homes & Gardens' slideshow features tile, glass, stone and more
– Kitchens.com offers plenty of ideas, and includes a Q&A with kitchen designers
